The Johnsons

Almost a year before starting our Attic Remodel and Steel Roof project, I met Kevin Balts at the Eau Claire Home and Garden show; Kevin really impressed me with both his knowledge of the work as well as with his personal integrity, and that's ultimately the reason why we hired Balts to execute this project for us. They should be proud of the job they did.

After accepting what was arguably one of the toughest roofing jobs in the area, and adding to that major new construction in putting three new dormers on the roof while sheetrocking and finishing the attic interior to create a true third story for our home, we now have a cozy space where my family spends the majority of our evenings, which also serves as my home office 10 to 12 hours every day.

Balts fit our budget to our desired outcome unlike any of the other builders we interviewed and worked hard to stay within our parameters while also showing a willingness to alter the original plan along the way to work in a few new ideas (like adding a third dormer, at the last minute).

We've increased the energy efficiency of the house by nearly 40 percent (reducing air exchanges from 7.5 per hour to 5.3), reduced our annual homeowners insurance premium by 30 percent and added a 20 percent net increase (selling price as a percentage of total project cost) to the value of the home.

But, the ultimate test of any business referral is whether a customer would hire someone back for more work and in that respect, I recommend Kevin, Shannon, Mary and Balts expert team of professional builders and roofers to anyone considering a similar project.

Kevin & Shannon-

As we sit and enjoy the new addition to our home, we just wanted to send a note thanking you for a job well done.  We were pleasantly surprised with the detailed estimate Kevin provided us and the time he spent explaining the phases of construction.

During the project there were no surprises or hidden costs.  To be honest we were not looking forward to the mess of the project.

THANK YOU for keeping the work site clean and respecting the rest of our home by keeping the area clean and neat each night.  The crew that was at our home was very conscientious to detail.

Most of all thank you for your honesty and keeping with in the time frame we specified for completion.

We will not hesitate to hire you again or recommend you to family and friends.

A couple of years ago, a young man came up to me as I was working in my yard, and asked if we needed any home improvements done - he was a very nice young man and was representative of the type of Company that Balts Construction is.

I knew from that point on that they would do a quality job for us. We found that they have a strong family approach to quality workmanship. We have been especially pleased with the "special touch" they gave to each of our projects.

They have an outstanding crew that works to make sure that each detail is completed before leaving the project site. Especially important to us was how they stand behind their work. Kevin, Shannon and their entire staff and crew have been a delight to know and to work with - and we would strongly recommend them to anyone considering any type of home improvement project.
